Engineering, Computer Engineering Concentration BSE


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by Department

Engineering builds on a strong traditional mathematics, science, and engineering core. The Computer Engineering Concentration focuses on the areas of digital systems, communication systems, and computer controlled instrumentation and computer simulation.

The mathematics courses listed as cognates for the Engineering degree satisfy the requirements for a minor in mathematics. A second major in mathematics requires 6 additional credits in mathematics, and a second major in physics requires 14–17 additional credits in physics. See the Mathematics and Physics department listings for details.

Total Credits - 124


Additional Requirements


No grade lower than C- may be counted toward any degree requirement. All prerequisites for ENGR courses must be passed with a minimum grade of C- before entry into the class it is required for.

Maintaining Academic Standing


An Engineering or Computing course may be repeated only once. Students may repeat only two Engineering or Computing courses. Students will be asked to withdraw from the program if they fail two Engineering or Computing courses in the same semester. Readmission will be considered on an individual basis. Transfer credits need to be submitted a minimum of six weeks prior to beginning of classes. Transfer students will be considered on an individual basis.

Student Learning Outcomes


Graduates of the program will demonstrate the ability to:

  • Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  • Apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
  • Communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  • Recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgements, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
  • Function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
  • Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgement to draw conclusions.
  • Acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
